Curving on Puget Sound

Washington State

This home feeds the homeowners’ passions: boating, family time, and entertaining. When plans began, the design was traditional but, “the more we looked at the site and the possible views, the more the design transitioned and evolved. We angled the house in a soft arc which maximizes views of the Sound and the Cascade Mountain range in the distance,” explains David Shirley, AIA.

The upper level carries a polished feel with curving, smooth re-sawn reclaimed timbers for the frame. The lower level rec space–golf simulator, bar, kids’ area–uses a rugged frame with as-found, rough sawn reclaimed timbers. A timber frame home for family and friends to engage.
